Minnesota Farm Bureau support of new and beginning farmers

Minnesota Farm Bureau is among many ag organizations looking to support new and beginning farmers.

President Dan Glessing, a dairy farmer from central Minnesota, says his state provides tax credits to help the next generation.

“It’s such a capital-intensive industry, so how do we create new spots for niche markets for them.”

He tells Brownfield some credits encourage land owners to consider selling to beginning farmers.

“Now, I fully recognize that those tax credits aren’t going to be substantial if you’re going to give up some of that cost of the per-acre land.
